On Sunday Prep Hoops Illinois took in the action from the Meanstreets Mini Camp!  There was a ton of talent in the house from a variety of classes.  Here we dive into the prospects with Meanstreets Mini Camp: Illinois 2021 Evaluations!

Thomas had an excellent day.  Continues to be a prospect that in our eyes isn’t getting enough attention on the recruiting trail.  The 6’2” combo guard has good strength and feel for the game.  Thomas is a high level shot maker from the point guard spot.  He is most effective creating his own shot off the bounce or pulling up in transition for threes and mid-range jumpers.  Also mixed in some tough drives for scoop shots and overall controlled the pace.


Grant NewellGrantNewell6'6" | PFWhitney Young | 2021StateIL (Whitney Young)

Newell played well when we saw him last month and continued that momentum with a strong outing at the Meanstreets mini camp.  The 6’7” face up four man played with energy on both ends.  Opened the day with a big blocked shot.  On the offensive end he was quick to the glass for put backs.  Worked very well in the pick/roll as a finisher.
